In Gravity Falls with Pacifica getting a “redemption” episode and what looks like Mabel is going to try and help her become an overall better person I wonder if they can do the same thing for Robbie.
I hope they do, because as far as “villainy” goes, you just know any attempts on his part would be embarrassing to watch.
As I’ve said before, he just seems like an extremely insecure teenager with zero self-confidence that tries painfully hard to be “cool”, rather than just being himself. If anything, he seems like someone that was probably bullied for being “different”, and now tries to wear a minimal appearance of “rebellion”, while still faking a mask of casual indifference. He’s the kind of person that wants others to believe that he doesn’t care what they think, when deep down, his entire world revolves around it.
We also know that he is human, and he does have feelings. The pillows on his bed are written all over with sad diatribe that sounds like bad song lyrics from some emo band that no one listens to but him.

And as much of a jerk as he may seem, even after Dipper nearly got him killed, he still couldn’t bring himself to lash out at him for it. I think he just needs to stop buying jeans out of the kids’ section, and stop being so preoccupied with appearances. He tried so hard to be “cool” enough for Wendy that, in the end, he inadvertently sabotaged his relationship with her out of his own fear of losing her. He just needs a super-sized chill pill.

I really want to see the pigtail scenario flashed back to in the show.
I can’t be the only one who wants to see some Robbie V development can I?
COME ON MUFFIN MAN LET’S SEE WHO YOU ARE
bookthrower: Ooh ooh Better question! What if Robbie had Stinky as a pet?
Actually, Stinky lives in the Mystery Shack, along with Tyrone (Dipperkitten) and Twinkle (Mabelkitten).
However, Robbie is frequently called upon for kittensitting duties: Not only because the kitten senses his familiarity, but also because, given its genetically-engineered relation to him, Robbie is less likely to be swayed by Stinky’s big, pleading kitten eyes (the twin kittens don’t really need kittensitting, as they tend to be more independent, and aren’t as much of a worry if left unattended). Also, if Stinky starts acting up, Robbie can just put the little floof in “time out” inside his hoodie. It also serves as an excellent kitten transporting device.
pkmnadventurer: Sorry if this seems randomly stupid, but what if Robbie kitty had his own pet owlcat?
"Well, Stinky, what are you gonna name him?"
Wendy x Robbie is an abusive ship just sayin
…Is this person fucking serious??
- Has crush on girl for 4+years
- Painfully insecure, to the point where he literally feels threatened by a 12-year-old
- Tries way too hard to be “cool”, but fails miserably
- Wendy could literally kick his ass if she wanted to
That’s like calling an overweight chihuahua a “vicious animal”.
So what does this say about Usagi, who is “literally” threatened by her six year old daughter from the future?
Uhm, did you miss the part where he literally mind controlled Wendy into going on a date with him? And he’s just in general a complete dick
The thing is, at his core, he’s more like Dipper than anyone wishes to acknowledge. He’s insecure, and he panicked at the thought of losing the girl he’s liked for so long. Robbie also tries so hard to be “cool”, but still doesn’t garner the same respect from Wendy and his own friends than Dipper managed to in under a month, so it’s no wonder he perceived Dipper as a threat. Meanwhile, no one ever seems to want to acknowledge the shit Dipper’s pulled over Wendy:
- Stole someone’s bike
- Stole a powerful time travel device in order to alter time just to keep Robbie from asking Wendy out (and causing a giant mess in the process)
- Nearly got Robbie KILLED
And yet, Robbie couldn’t even bring himself to hit Dipper afterward, despite having been pummeled and chased down by a character from an arcade game because of him. Both boys have acted equally shitty to each other.
There are two sides to every story, and you should really know by now that no one in Gravity Falls is what they seem.
